Credit Geoff Duncan.
Couples looking for a romantic getaway will find plenty of fun things to do in Austin, from foodie favorites to active adventures. Get some tips for your next date with these 15 ideas.
1. GET PAMPERED WITH A LUXURIOUS SPA TREATMENT.
 Enjoy a soothing massage alongside your sweetheart with a spa day at one of the many spas in Austin. For massages and body treatments, book the Delicious Duet Spa Package (2 hours, 20 minutes) at Viva Day Spa, or opt for the Couples Retreat (3 hours) at Milk + Honey.
2. TANTALIZE YOUR TASTE BUDS WITH ROMANTIC RESTAURANTS IN AUSTIN.
 From super-casual eateries to upscale restaurants, take your beloved out for a night of cuisine and conversation. Impress your date with cutting-edge Mexican cuisine at the sexy Comedor or the four-course tasting menu at the glamorous Lenoir. Share a few slices of gourmet pizza at Bufalina, get interactive with hot pot dining at DipDipDip Tatsu-Ya (named 2019 Restaurant of the Year by Eater Austin) or flirt over French dishes under the candlelit winter tent at Justine’s. Dine on the homey veranda at Olamaie (don’t miss the Southern biscuits!) or snag a table at Fabi + Rosi, serving European dishes in a charming bungalow. Enjoy Lady Bird Lake views at Arlo Grey, located in the hip LINE hotel and headed by Top Chef 10 winner Kristen Kish, who melds French and Italian traditions.
3. SIP HANDCRAFTED COCKTAILS IN COZY COCKTAIL BARS.
 For classic cocktails, slip into a velvet booth at The Roosevelt Room or make a reservation at the speakeasy-inspired Midnight Cowboy. Go for exotic tiki drinks at She’s Not Here, featuring charming decor inspired by 1920s hotel lobbies. Grab a seat at Domo Alley-Gato, a patio bar-and-restaurant designed to look like a colorful Tokyo alley, mixing Japanese-inspired cocktails. At the ranch-style Contigo, head outdoors (yep, even in winter) to cozy up around the fire pit with a drink in hand. Or kick back with snacks and spirits by the poolside fireplace at The Pool Deck atop the Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt.
 4. EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF THE THEATER.
 No matter what kind of show you’re in the mood for, you’re bound to find the perfect date night entertainment in Austin. Catch everything from ballet to Shakespeare at Long Center for the Performing Arts, laugh the night away with a comedy at Cap City Comedy Club, or jam out to an Austin City Limits Live concert at The Moody Theater.
